PYB makes a quick Wednesday appearance, as we laud the Baltimore Orioles for bringing back one of the best logos in sports history. The days before everything was black & silver and selling team gear was more important than creativity.
--Any road win is a good one in college basketball, especially if you're Nebraska. The Cornhuskers nabbed a victory from USC Monday night in the disgusting City of Angels. In true Big 10 style, the final score was 64-61 in 2OT. Bo Spencer racked up 22 points, seven rebounds, three assists and four turnovers. Perhaps he will be the scorer NU has needed the last few years. JB Diaz chipped in 10 and 8, along with three blocks. We'll see what he does against good teams with stronger players.
We were definitely too tired and too cheap to stay up for the 930pm tip time and pay the extra money to DirecTV for one game. We'll offer our first game analysis after Sunday's contest against Rhode Island. The Rams lost last night to Texas in Austin, 100-90. That said, it was nice to see NU shoot a Division-I-worthy 45% (9/20) from three-point land.
--Kansas was outclassed and outcoached, once again, last night at MSG in NYC.
--The Mayor loses to Drake. Hopefully, NU beat the CyClowns in their pre-season scrimmage.
--Middle Tennessee State goes 10/11 from downtown and blasts UCLA 86-66 in Los Angeles.
